Brownies, beer & squid: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Well, the downpour seems to have dwindled to a trickle, but there's word we'll get much more rain -- and possibly thunder this evening, so we're not out of the woods yet. Bit of good news? Looks like the weekend will be clear. We're a week out from St. Patrick's Day and the D.C. area blogosphere has taken note. And spring is almost here, so gardeners around the area might want to take note of today's post from The Slow Cook.

For St. Patrick's Day - brownies with a bit 'o Guinness. Thanks to Endless Simmer.

And Now, Anacostia has the details about a new radio station set to launch in D.C. React Radio (WPWC 1480AM) will be "a globally-minded progressive music and talk radio station."

Cast-iron pizza? It's delicious, or so says Macheesmo, who recently whipped up a pie.

Spring is right around the corner. For you farmers out there, The Slow Cook has a list of vegetables that grow especially well in the D.C. area, plus recipes to use the bounty from your garden.

Some underwater fun for a rainy day: 14 fun facts about octopuses, squid and other cephalopods - from Surprising Science.

Happy Blogiversary to Metro-Venture, which celebrates a little more than a year in existence. Followers of Em's blog may know her mission was to explore every Metrobus and Metro line in a year - but, well, things happen. So the good news is: She'll still be blogging.

That's it for now. Stay dry and have a great rest of the day. I'll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere. Have a thought or comment? Post below or e-mail me at You can also follow me on Twitter.
